N=6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories, M2-branes and their gravity duals
We construct three dimensional Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge groups U(N) × U(N) and SU(N) × SU(N) which have explicit = 6 superconformal symmetry. Using brane constructions we argue that
Fractional M2-branes
We consider two generalizations of the = 6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge group U(N) × U(N). The first generalization is to = 6 superconformal U(M) × U(N) theories, and the
Reading between the lines of four-dimensional gauge theories
A bstractStarting with a choice of a gauge group in four dimensions, there is often freedom in the choice of magnetic and dyonic line operators. Different consistent choices of these operators
3d dualities from 4d dualities
A bstractMany examples of low-energy dualities have been found in supersymmetric gauge theories with four supercharges, both in four and in three space-time dimensions. In these dualities, two

Correlation functions of large N Chern-Simons-Matter theories and bosonization in three dimensions
A bstractWe consider the conformal field theory of N complex massless scalars in 2 + 1 dimensions, coupled to a U(N) Chern-Simons theory at level k. This theory has a ’t Hooft large N limit, keeping
